My son got this Melissa and Doug easel for Christmas when he was just two years old. It has taken a beating by both him and his sister over the years. At one point they colored on it with regular markers, not dry erase, and no matter how much I scrubbed it, I couldn’t get the marker off. It was stressing me out, so I put it in the garage. Then recently my good friend suggested I clean it with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. . . she’s the kind of friend that always has good advice. . . .

Look what a little elbow grease and a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser did for our poor easel! Except for a few marks on the wood it looks as good as it did 3.5 years ago when it was found under the Christmas tree! I flipped the wood bar on the bottom and gave the tray a bath.

I used half of a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, a little water and some elbow grease! That’s it. I used a tiny, tiny bit of Goo Gone to get rid of sticker residue.

Amazon has a great deal on Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Cleaning Pads, 8-Count Box – just $6.15 shipped with subscribe and save. It is an 8-count box, so that’s only $0.77 cents each.

Hope this advice helps you, too! What sorts of things have you cleaned with a Mr. Clean Magic Erase?

Disclaimer – Make sure and read the directions on your Mr. Clean Magic Eraser box. There are some surfaces that can become discolored or worn after being cleaned with a Magic Eraser. I was willing to risk it, since my easel was already in such bad shape. Don’t blame me if Mr. Eraser rubs the paint off of something or you chip a nail scrubbing. 😉

  1. Mr. Clean did not work on mine. boo. not sure how much elbow grease you need but I don’t have much! joints are hurting today from Lupus so need to find something not needing a lot of elbow grease. thanks though!

  2. I always just use baking soda

    Have you ever try ” GOOF OFF” spray bottle minus the stink ($5 at Target) with Magic Eraser ? That is my best ever.
    Don’t get the hair spray, Does it get sticky and dry up so quickly?
    Please suggest Laundry tips on how to keep white socks white. I tried white vinegar, auto dish washing liquid ETC. still not happy with it.

  4. So if you write on a dryerase board with a perm marker like a sharpie color over it with a dryerase marker and it will come off.

  5. Magic Erasers are just melamine foam- which is much cheaper on Amazon if you buy them in bulk!

    Hairspray works great too on dry erase boards. Just be sure to wash the hairspray off after cleaning.

    • Hairspray works on any laminated surface like cabinets and counters. My mom has a can at school just for that 🙂

  7. Toothpaste also works great on removing crayons from boards, cabinets, doors.
